Spinach and feta are a classic Mediterranean combination. The salty feta perfectly complements the fresh greens. Tonight use this dynamic duo to make a delicious casserole sized calzone. The vegetarian filling — reminiscent of spanakopita — is a mixture of wilted spinach, sautéed onion, crushed red pepper, garlic, and feta.
